Many of us have been debating the genders/sexes in this novel, with some of us thinking of certain characters as "he" and "she" despite not really knowing what they are. (Of course we do get some reveals that tell us biological sex in a few instances.) I'm curious about how you imagined these characters as you wrote them. Are some biologically male or female in your mind, or did you think of all of them as gender-neutral "she," the way Breq does?
